Mar: Today is a historic moment as I and the Board of Supervisors Budget and Finance Committee voted to approve the loan for site acquisition and pre-development for the Sunset’s first 100% affordable housing development for low and moderate income families at 2550 Irving St.
As we emerge from the pandemic, we’re stepping into a neighborhood, City and world that look different. The pandemic has revealed and exacerbated long-standing inequities, forced us all to adapt to survive, and perhaps forever shifted our understanding of what’s essential, what’s possible, and how deeply our health and wellness are connected to our neighbors.
Housing affordability, access to neighborhood services, and local businesses remain top concerns.

Letter to the Editor: Sunset Community Alliance Assoc. Against Irving St. Affordable Housing Project
I am writing on behalf of the SF Sunset Community Alliance Association to highlight the facts and reality of the situation about the construction of the colossal affordable housing buidling at 2550 Irving St. in the mid-Sunset.
“If Supervisor Mar truly cares about families, why does he consistently support actions that make it more difficult and expensive for anyone who must drive a vehicle?”
We appreciate you engaging with the community to make this affordable housing a success, and we would appreciate it if you could share the community’s reasonable concerns with the press next time you speak with them, including how you’re planning to engage with us to address them.
For decades, the Sunset District has lost more affordable housing than it has built. This isn’t just a statistic, it’s the stories of thousands of our neighbors being displaced, and many on the brink.
